Forza Horizon 5 is now officially out and is already putting up strong numbers and developing a large player-base in the storied franchise's latest iteration. With more and more players flocking to the game by the day, everybody wants to know tips to give them a competitive edge.

For those just hearing about the Forza Horizon franchise, the series is a collection of racing games that began in 2012 as a spin-off of another older Forza racing game series: Forza Motorsport.

In a game like FH5, players' vehicle choice is everything, so, without further ado, here's the best choice players can make:

What is the Best Car in Forza Horizon 5?

Players searching for the best car in Forza Horizon 5 have two options to choose from; either the Koenigsegg Jesko or the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento Forza Edition.

Each of these cars has the respective strengths that let it make a case for the best car. Starting with the Jesko, it is widely perceived to be the fastest car in FH5, and of course, being the fastest car in a racing game makes it the best in the eyes of many.

Alternatively, the Sesto Elemento offers fantastic handling that reminds some of F1-style cars. Additionally, the car offers fantastic acceleration allowing which makes up for its overall slower nature compared to the Jesko. According to those who participated in the preview build of FH5, the Sesto Elemento was amazing then and, with the game officially released, remains amazing now.

What may come as a surprise to some is the absence of the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE, the car appearing on the cover of FH5. While this car is certainly not a terrible option, it doesn't offer the handling, accerleration, or speed that the Jesko or Sesto Elemento do. Consequently, the car is not a very popular choice among players.
